Last Will and Testament: Did you know that if you die without a Last Will and Testament, everything you’ve ever worked for could become an asset of the state? Don’t you want to leave your possessions, your home, your money, etc. to your spouse or your child(ren)?

What if you and your spouse are both in an automobile accident and you both die…do you know who will raise your child(ren)? Don’t you want to make that decision today – before it’s too late? A Last Will and Testament clearly states who your assets will be left to. It also states who will be the guardian(s) of your child(ren).

Let the Law Office of Zachary A. Cohen prepare your Will so that you can have peace of mind knowing that everything has been prepared just the way you want.

Living Will: If the unthinkable happens, do you want to be kept alive by a machine or feeding tube? If not, by having a Living Will, it clearly states your desire for a natural death. Once you reach that point, you can obviously no longer make that decision, but if you have a Living Will, you have already made that decision, and your family and your doctor will already know that you do not wish to be kept alive by artificial means. This takes the decision out of the hand(s) of someone that you may not trust to make the decision you would have made if you were able to do so.

Let the Law Office of Zachary A. Cohen prepare this form for you. It can be done the same day you call.

Healthcare Power of Attorney: If you are in an accident and life and death decisions need to be made for you, do you know who will make those decisions? Whether or not to operate? Will they make the same decisions you would have if you were able to do so? A Healthcare Power of Attorney clearly states who you direct to make these decisions if you become unable to do so. This should be your choice, but the only way it can be, is with a Healthcare Power of Attorney. The difference between a Living Will and a Healthcare Power of Attorney is: a Living Will only states your desire for a natural death; a Healthcare Power of Attorney allows the person(s) you choose to make all other healthcare decisions for you.

Durable Power of Attorney: A Durable Power of Attorney gives the person(s) of your choice the power to make decisions for you in the event you are unable to do so in the future. For example: real property transactions; personal property transactions; insurance transactions; banking transactions; business operating expenses; taxes, etc. In the event you become mentally or physically incapacitated in the future, a Durable Power of Attorney clearly states the person(s) you trust and choose to handle these matters for you. For instance, if you are no longer able to pay your bills, if you are hospitalized, if you have Alzheimer’s or Dementia, etc., a Durable Power of Attorney allows this person (or persons) to handle these matters for you. If you make this choice while you are still mentally and physically able to do so, you never have to worry about someone you don’t trust to make decisions for you, to take over, or to have you declared incompetent. Surely you’ve known people that this has happened to. Don’t let it happen to you.

Get your choice in writing before that time comes. This form can be revoked by you at any time if you change your mind. The Law Office of Zachary A. Cohen can have this form ready for you the same day you call.
